Backspace Key Skips a Letter/Letters in Whatever BBS [H] Uses

I Just tested it in the title, and backspace works fine up there, and it works fine in THIS box (now I think I'm going crazy) but the quick reply box on this site and another site that uses some similar BBS system seems to act weird with text inputs, specifically the backspace. I will test again to make sure I'm not insane, but it's been happening for a little while now. I have already tested it on sites like Twitter, and in Notepad, Word, etc... it only seems to happen in the quick-reply box here and in another BBS site I frequent.

What happens:
If I hit backspace after typing a word, the cursor will skip over the last letter, and delete the second to the last letter instead. Also, backspace will delete spaces automatically after backspacing through an entire word.

For reference, I'm using Win10 Pro, Brave (chromium) browser, a Corsair K75, and have no issue typing elsewhere (aside from my own known personal limitations)
Thinking if I'm not the only one this happens to, someone could send a bug report and get it patched? Or at the very least, just trying to troubleshoot why it's happening.

testing testing. Okay now it isn't doing it. Damn it.
testing again, nope. Okay, so it IS intermittent. Now, why is it intermittent? wait, now it's happening, or at least the space deleting part. HMMM

Use the same except a K70. No problems here. Very likely a browser extension issue.

I've seen the same issue before on Mac OS X with Safari and built-in keyboard.

More than likely an ASCII error. Seen this happen with some remote VNC access software we use. Had to switch over the installed VNC client. Turned out it had something to do with the browser and how the ctrl characters were being sent.
This type of thing used to happen all the time in the old days. The special characters were not trapped correctly and all kinds of fun things would happen.

If nothign else this will be a good entry for things to NOT use to access with!

I'm having a similar issue. When hitting the backspace, it closes the keyboard and I have to tap in the reply box to bring up the keyboard again. Same with the return button.

I experienced this myself on any XenForo board I visit.
Known Bug on XF Community:
https://xenforo.com/community/threa...yboard-hides-the-keyboard.184544/post-1455301

Something related to the recent update of Chrome / conflict on the BBCode editor.
All I can do is to wait XenForo devs to push an update for this issue.
